Ilari "Ilari FIN" Sahamies is back in action in the big PLO games on PokerStars
and celebrated by going on a major winning streak last night.
The Finnish PowerPoker pro is among the few superstars who has not been in action at the 2012 World Series of Poker, but looking at his latest results he has no need for playing tournament poker to make big scores.
Playing in a couple of $200/$400 PLO games yesterday, Sahamies managed to bank a full $444,000 in just 864 hands - a record run for the Finn this year.
The money came mainly from run-ins with Sander "Berndsen12" Berndsen, "Phisherman36" and Terje "Terken89" Augdal, according to Highstakesdb.com
The biggest hand of the session was worth a whopping $216,871, and occurred as Sahamies rivered a straight against his two opponents, who both missed their flush draws.
With the win, totaling exactly $443,736, Sahamies has now managed to turn around all of his losses for 2012, and is now showing a modest profit of $525 for the year.
The biggest winner of the year so far is "EireAbu", who is up $3,051,326, while "Zypherin" continues to be in the hole by $2,708,561 to make him the biggest overall loser of 2012.
